You’d think by this stage of the game I would have outgrown glitter and sparkles, but as John Belushi used to say (that’s how old I am), “but no-oh” I still want all the sparkles!
The SA at Sephora who was helping me during the VIB sale was wearing a gorgeous purple glitter liner that made her brown eyes pop. I couldn’t take my eyes off of her eyes, lol. I asked her what she was wearing, and she took me over to the Urban Decay display and showed me the Heavy Metal Glitter Liners.
There are about 13 gorgeous shades of liquid glitter liner in total, and Sephora had about 8 of them, four of which were new shades at Sephora. They are water/gel-based liners made from superfine glitter in a clear or transparent-tinted base.
I originally decided on a rose pink shade, Catcall.
It was a beautiful shade when I swatched the tester on my hand, but when I got it home and tried it, it didn’t show up on my pink eyelids except for a couple of pieces of glitter. Sad.
I brought it back and exchanged it for the silver, Glamrock. Much better for me!
I like to go back and forth with the skinny, little brush a few times angling the brush to get the amount of bling that I’m looking for, and it builds nicely. What looks even better, IMO, is applying pencil liner – in the lower swatch I used charcoal gray – with the Glamrock liner over it. I love it. I think it would look great over colored liner like navy blue or deep purple too.
BTW, I haven’t had any issues with glitter fallout.
Is this an eyeliner I’ll use all the time? No (although I wish I could wear it everyday!), it’s mostly for the holidays or for parties. I don’t usually wear glitter shadows, but having a little glitter at the lash line is a nice compromise. I look forward to wearing it with silver metallic shadow or with shades of grey matte shadows. Party on!
If you want full on glitter, you can apply it on top of your eyeshadow using the side of the brush or tapping it on the center of the lid with a finger. Lots of ways to go.
